Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly made use of to describe crafts created by an artisan as opposed to a factory. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is unique. Not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and also sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter functions with just thread, thimble, and also needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to develop an item distinctively for you.
